Subtrope of JerkWithAHeartOfGold, and often a form of ObfuscatingStupidity. Can be associated with BookDumb. If they're also rich, they may be an UpperClassTwit. When they try to be TheSlacker, they usually turn into a ProfessionalSlacker. See also UnskilledButStrong, which a Brilliant But Lazy character can be if they have great power but don't bother working to improve on it.

May overlap with the EruditeStoner, whose laziness comes from being under the influence, and the AbsentMindedProfessor, who may seem lazy because his intellect distracts him from everyday tasks. Contrast NerdsLoveToughSchoolwork. See also, HiddenDepths.

* Helga in ''WesternAnimation/HeyArnold'' is shown to possess an intellect well beyond that of the typical fourth grader. She's a talented poet with an impressive vocabulary and gets an impressive score on her aptitude test. Unfortunately, being neglected by her parents in favor of her older sister Olga has squandered her confidence and most of the time she doesn't even try to do well in school.

* ''Rufus'' from ''VideoGame/StreetFighter'' is a FatBastard and slob who loves to eat, but his fighting style leaves almost all other characters impressed. It is actually the product of long, rigorous training under various Kung Fu masters. Their win quotes are a combination of complements and contemplating how much stronger he could be if he only lost weight.

* [[MarySue Ebony Dark'ness]] [[OverlyLongName Dementia]] [[EmoKid Raven Way]] of MyImmortal. Supposedly the only one who can defeat Voldemort (and easily out-matches him in Chapter 9), but would rather shop at Hot Topic and have sex with anything that moves instead.
* FanFic/NineKnackeredSouls: Even after being [[BalefulPolymorph turned into a]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic pony]], Grif instead prefers to use his super pegasus speed to escape from Sarge and nap on clouds.

** ''Videogame/FalloutNewVegas'' has Poindexter of the Misfits squad. A stereotypical InsufferableGenius who speaks in SesquipadalianLoquaciousness, he joined the NCR military with the hopes of eventually landing a cushy desk job far from the action and otherwise has no real interest in being an actual soldier. In the quest to improve the Misfits, he suggests altering their records to make their squad look better but if properly trained or given a good pep-talk he'll actually prove to be a competent soldier.
